Rare 1866-S Motto Eagle, AU55 NGC

1866-S $10 Motto AU55 NGC. A well struck yellow-gold piece with substantial luster throughout the margins and devices. The left obverse field near the portrait is moderately abraded, and the upper reverse has a pair of inoffensive pinscratches. IN GOD WE TRUST was added to business strikes in 1866, but the new reverse die did not reach the San Francisco Mint until April 14. 1866-S Eagles are known with and without the motto. The former is more available, but both issues are rare in all grades and none have been certified as Mint State by either major service. Population: 3 in 55, 1 finer (2/04).(#8650) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 53FR, PCGS# 8650)
